The Ultimate Tailgater Launches 2 Minute Drill Videos: Streaming Tips for Tailgaters Available as Free Downloads

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — This month, The Ultimate Tailgater launches The Ultimate Tailgater’s 2 Minute Drill, the first streaming videos and video podcast available for tailgaters across America. The Ultimate Tailgater’s 2 Minute Drill is a series of two-minute videos showing a variety of helpful tailgating tips. Hosted by Stephen Linn, author of the popular The Ultimate Tailgater’s Handbook, these videos will help tailgaters throw the best party in the parking lot.

“One of the most popular aspects of The Ultimate Tailgater’s Handbook are all the great tips — setting up your tailgate, grilling, dressing for your tailgate party, recipes — those sorts of things. The Ultimate Tailgater’s 2 Minute Drill is about actually showing tailgaters how to do all of that — helping them have a great tailgate party, while providing a video they can watch whenever and almost wherever they want,” Linn said.

The 2 Minute Drill features interviews with experts who will give tips on topics ranging from cooking at a tailgating party, to dressing for a tailgate, and everything in between. The initial 2 Minute Drills will be released twice monthly, expanding to a weekly feature later in the year. The first episodes include Gas Grilling, Food Safety, and Tailgating Set-Up. You can watch and download the videos at

The Ultimate Tailgater’s 2 Minute Drill will be distributed on scores of tailgating and related websites. These sites make up The Ultimate Tailgater’s Network and are the online homes for dedicated tailgating audiences including the websites of the American Tailgaters Association, The Ultimate Tailgater,, tailgating clubs and other similar websites. Combined, this network receives nearly 3 million hits per month.

In a few weeks Linn will also debut The Ultimate Tailgater’s Podcast. The Ultimate Tailgater’s Podcast will offer a fun half-hour of information, news, tips and features for all types of tailgaters — football, racing, concerts and any other events where parking lot communities pop-up. It will be available, like the 2 Minute Drill, at, across The Ultimate Tailgater Network, and on popular podcast services.

Last year it’s estimated that more than 80 million people tailgated at events ranging from football games, to racing, to concerts. “We don’t picnic in America anymore, we tailgate,” explains Linn, “and The Ultimate Tailgater is the best source of information, tips and tailgating news for all those dedicated fans who are out there — regardless of the weather, and often their team’s record — to spend time with their friends and support their team.”

Stephen Linn is the founder and president of 4964 Productions and its publishing division, Interactive Blvd, which create and produce television shows and books. He’s the author of The Ultimate Tailgater’s Handbook and The Ultimate Tailgater’s Travel Guide (releasing August 2006, both Rutledge Hill Press). A former award-winning television news anchor and reporter, he also owns a marketing company in Nashville, where he lives with his wife and twin daughters.
